If Kavanaugh’s accuser is lying, why is she the one asking for a thorough investigation? – Chicago Tribune
But many — from close friends who knew she was considering coming forward with her claim against Kavanaugh to colleagues and nearly 600 alumnae from her high school — have also described Christine Blasey Ford, a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, as a good and decent woman. Her allegation that a drunken Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom at a high school house party in the 1980s and sexually assaulted her while a friend of his watched is certainly credible.
She came forward, anonymously at first, with notes from a therapist she spoke to about the incident long before Kavanaugh was a candidate for the high court and with a successful polygraph conducted by a former FBI agent.
Does that mean it happened? Of course not. But it means Ford is coming forward with more than just some idle claim. It’s worthy of a thorough investigation, one that Kavanaugh himself, if he’s innocent, should be demanding.
But he’s not. He’s willing to appear at a hastily scheduled hearing Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and give his side of the story. But it’s Ford — who is also invited to testify at that hearing — who is calling for an FBI investigation into her claim before she testifies.
So far, Republicans are lining up to declare Kav innocent, without any investigation. But the all male and patriarchal witch trial wants to declare the witch guilty of lying at a hastily called ‘trial’.
Why is Kav so afraid of what the FBI might find if they dug into his side of the story?
